      Almar Haflidason BBC.com Rated: 4/5 Jan 1, 2000 Full Review Penelope Gilliatt Observer (UK) Directed by George Pollock, who has included some beautiful severe photography of drab autumn country, Murder She Said is an adroit Agatha Christie thriller oddly like a thirties pastiche. Mar 6, 2024 Full Review Wesley Lovell Cinema Sight at least the opening salvo is worth the time of any murder mystery fan who likes the way Christie weaves stories, even when they are altered in many ways for the visual medium. Rated: 3/4 Oct 10, 2023 Full Review Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews Rutherford is a treat. Rated: B Jun 17, 2023 Full Review John J. Puccio Movie Metropolis Murder She Said does have a reasonably lively style, thanks partly to Pollock's direction but largely to Rutherford's persistence.... Rated: 7/10 Mar 8, 2006 Full Review Daniel Eagan Film Journal International Smart adaptation of an Agatha Christie novel Rated: 3/5 Sep 13, 2005 Full Review Read all reviews

      john k Brilliant acting and great plot makes this movie a proper classic 👍👍 Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review joe m A great old murder-whodunnit based on Agatha Christie's Miss Marple, "Murder, She Said" is just flat out engaging, suspenseful and fun! The movie is completely carried by Dame Margaret Rutherford who gives a tour de force performance as the elderly sleuth who is supported by a cadre of outstanding British actors - the best being James Robert Justice as the crusty old patriarch of a manor house full of murder. There are three others of these Miss Marple films starring Rutherford and I can't wait to watch the rest! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Of the four Agatha Christie movies starring wonderful Margaret Rutherford, Ronnie Raymond, Thorley Walters, James Robertson Justice, this is the best, my absolute favorite. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/12/23 Full Review Frances H These old Agatha Christie Miss Marple movies with Margaret Rutherford were a sheer delight, always tongue-in-cheek and so cute. This one had another future Miss Marple in the other domestic, played by Joan Hickson, who played Miss Marple for years in a BBC series shown here in the States on Mystery on PBS. But Hickson was such a dry old stick compared to Rutherford and later Geraldine McEwen. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 04/22/20 Full Review s r Nothing to write home about, but it had its entertaining little English quirks. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Rutherford is fabulous and the presence of the ever woofy James Robertson Justice certainly helps.
